    DOLE pay rules

    Private employers are expected to adhere to higher pay rules for employees who work during the holidays.

    Employers must observe the following formula in the computation of wages:


    For August 21 special non-working holiday:

    If the employee did not work, the “no work, no pay” policy shall apply unless there is another company policy, practice, or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on special days.

    For work done during the special non-working holiday, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her daily rate on the first eight hours of work [(basic wage x 130%) + COLA].

    For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate on the said day [hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked].

    If an employee works on a special holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 50% of his/her daily rate on the first eight hours of work [(basic wage x 150%) + COLA].

    For overtime work on a special holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate on the said day [Hourly rate of the basic wage x 150% x 130% x number of hours worked].

    For August 31 regular holiday:

    Employees who did not work on regular holidays shall be paid 100 percent of their salary ([Basic wage + COLA] x 100 percent)], while those who worked shall be paid 200 percent of their regular salary for the first eight hours ([Basic wage + COLA] x 200 percent).

    Further, if the employees worked overtime (work done in excess of eight hours), they shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate (hourly rate of the basic wage x 200 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).

    Moreover, those who worked on a regular holiday that also fell on their rest day shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their basic wage of 200 percent [(Basic wage + COLA) x 200 percent] + [30 percent (Basic wage x 200 percent)].

    Workers who rendered overtime work on a regular holiday that also fell on their rest day shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate on said day (hourly rate of the basic wage x 200 percent x 130 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).
